The majority of goods we store are containerised. This has many advantages over other forms of storage such as storing in warehouses and using self storage facilities. Storing in containers eliminates the need to unload into a warehouse or self storage unit. We own all of our own containers. All containers are purchased brand new and are setup specifically for the storage of furniture. All containers and contents are regularly inspected to ensure all contents are kept dry and clean.
Our clients furniture and effects are loaded into the container they are to be stored in at their residence. This allows the goods to stay wrapped in our thick furniture blankets and fabric items are kept stored in their plastic covers to keep them well protected. Only one consignment is stored per container and our clients only pay for the volume used, not the entire container.
There is no unloading into a warehouse where goods are stored without protection and generally with other customers goods. Not only can this increase the chances of goods being mixed up but the unloading and reloading required increases both the chance of items getting damaged and due to extra resources required, the removal price and handling fees can dramatically increase.
We built our own purpose built removal and storage facility in 2009. It is designed to store our customers goods for short or long periods using containerised and module forms. Inside we store over 100 houseloads of furniture and effects at any one time. These are kept very secure by back to base burglar alarms and security fencing & lighting. We have annual electrical, plumbing, roofing and pest inspections. The premises is audited twice a year to comply with our Government contract.
We also offer module storage for our clients who require their goods to be stored long term. We regard this period to be a minimum of 12 months. Our modules are treated timber crates that are stored inside our warehouses. Once again, these goods stay protected and in their own module(s).
Security is a very important part of protecting our clients possessions and we take many precautions to ensure goods stay safe. All containers are stored with the doors of the container stacked against the doors of another container. Our properties have security fencing, security lighting and monitored back to base alarm systems.
We offer insurance on stored furniture and effects to give that extra peace of mind. Our insurance covers many risks including flooding and cyclone.
